Summary
This is the story of Chicago's ruthless and tireless Mafia. The intensely real characters-the brutal overlords, their faithful lackeys, and their vengeful enemies-all collide in acts of loyalty, lust, greed, and death. Power hungry Don Jimmy Collucci is out to become the kingpin of Chicago's "Honored Society." His rise to the top can only be thwarted by one man-a man fueled by revenge who is hell-bent on bringing Collucci's infamous organization down: the "Black Warrior," Jessie Taylor. When ambitions collide, guns are drawn and blood is spilled. This gritty crime fiction tale is the original Mafia story
